Chinese Editor Hu Shuli Takes Over News Magazine

From guardian.co.uk:

One of China’s most independent editors today announced that she had taken the reins at a prominent general news magazine two months after splitting with a former publication over budget control and self-censorship.

Hu Shuli, who won plaudits for pushing the boundaries of media freedom in China, has become the executive editor of New Century News, a statement from her company, Caixin Media, said.

Most of the staff from Caijing, her former publication, have joined her. The first edition under their stewardship is expected to come out on 4 January.
